Meru Cabs is a ride hailing company based in Mumbai, India.[2][3] It provides cab booking facilities through calls, website, Messenger bot on Facebook, Google Maps or through their mobile application and accepts payments through cash or multiple wallet options.[4] [5] Meru Cabs integrated their cab service with Google Now which will send passengers reminders for cab pickups, alerting them if they wish to book a cab based on their location and other information through Now Cards within the Google app.[6][7]

History[edit | edit source]

Meru cab was founded by Neeraj Gupta in Mumbai on April 2007 by raising funds against an equity stake in the company from India Value Fund (IVF), which is a private equity fund with a corpus of over US$1.4 Billion.[8] [9] On 2 February 2014, Google Now and Meru Cabs announced a partnership to provide instant alerts to customers.[10] Meru cabs partnered with French taxi service provider Taxis G7 to provide taxi services globally.[11][12]

In January 2016, Meru cabs started ride sharing options in New Delhi.[13] They branched out from their traditional green Radio Taxis to open categories of Hatchback, Sedan and SUV in January 2017. Meru is the only taxi service that does not charge Surge Pricing to its customers; this plays as a key differentiator,[14] and they offer coupons, offers and discounts to customers.
